Ho Hum

Sunday November 16th, Zephaniah 1: 7 Be silent before the Sovereign LORD, for the day of the LORD is near.  The LORD has prepared a sacrifice; he has consecrated those he has invited. The biggest threat to Christianity is not Islam or evolution or creationism or atheism or liberals or neo-cons or the so called homosexual agenda, it is Christians who are complacent. God can work through all the other hot button issues we sometimes think are so important, but someone who is complacent, is, in the midst of their seeming complacency, very busy keeping God at bay. When you let God take hold, changes take place. Those changes might not be the Muslim becoming Christian or the evolutionists supporting creationism or the atheists outwardly turning to God or the homosexual becoming somehow straight, as if that were possible or even what God finds desirable.  Those changes are all about personal agendas and have little to do with God. The change that takes place is much deeper than that, it is in the heart and therefore in the very essence of who this person is who is grabbed by God. This is a change in the heart of a human.  It’s the Ho-Hummers who seem to be the most concerned with the hot button issues and keeping God at bay by keeping these non-issues alive and in the spotlight.  It is also the Ho-Hummers who are most slippery when it comes to being grasped by God.  Ho-Hummers include most of us some of the time and some of us most of the time.
